From: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Blend: Pinot Noir
Taste: Translucent ruby red in the glass, this 2021 EZY TGR Pinot Noir exudes aromas of fresh strawberry, dark ripe berries, and hints of cherry cola. As it evolves, nuances of dried rose and black tea emerge. On the palate, bright red fruits like cranberry, pomegranate, and currant shine through, complemented by a touch of spice and brown sugar. With an elegant, silky texture and medium body, it offers a fresh, easy take on the classic Willamette Pinot. Crafted by the creators of Big Salt and other esteemed Ovum wines.
Pairing: The 2021 EZY TGR Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with dishes like duck, pork tenderloin, and grilled salmon. Its versatile profile also complements mushroom stir fry, mushrooms with polenta, and dishes that favor fall vegetables (check out the recipe below). For a casual meal, consider pairing it with pizza, burgers, or either veggie or meaty tacos.

About. “Established in 2011 by Ksenija and John House, Ovum was founded in hopes of producing Oregon white wines that are honest reflections of time and place. Our low intervention production method is a commitment to letting the vintage and vineyard shine, not the vintner. Fruit comes first - our top priority is finding farmers that share our beliefs, and then getting out of the way so their hard work can be tasted.
Native ferments, no subtractions or additions, except for SO2 - extended lees contact 8-9 months, for textural complexity. All of this is done in neutral barrels of acacia and oak, as well as cement egg and Austrian cask. Ovum is solely committed to the production of white wines, mainly Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat. Each wine is produced exactly the same way - if the wine smells or tastes different it has everything to do with the time and place, and little to do with the winemaker. Their hope is that through this minimal handling, and honest technique, they can produce old fashioned wines for the modern world.”
Or, so it was, until the brilliant minds behind Big Salt and Ovum's other mind-bending white wines from Oregon started playing around with Pinot. Now, they bring you a lip-smacking Pinot Noir at an unbelievable price, EZY TGR. Being Ksenija and John House, they were presented with an incredible opportunity to showcase Reserve-level Pinot Noir at an affordable, everyday drinking price without sacrificing or shortcutting in the cellar. These grapes were hand harvested, fermented spontaneously, and aged up to 18 months in neutral French barrels. The resulting wine is striking in its elegance and purity, red fruited, and the perfect accompaniment to a variety of foods or celebrations.
